Hey All,

I brewed a black IPA on the 18th of November. Tonight I opened it up to take a gravity reading and add dry hops and found this. The gravity is close to final. The yeast used was US-05.

I dry hopped an IPA I brewed the day before (used US-05 in this as well) and it was at it's FG.

It looks like a krausen to me, but wanted to double check. I've had a few homebrews so I decided to throw in the dry hops anyway, and now I'm wondering if that was the wrong choice.

Looks like Kraeusen and perfectly fine. Never had one go quite that long. Closest was a Russian Imperial Stout that went for seven days actively throwing up a Kraeusen.
